air raid sirens still echoed across the city sending residents running for cover. for the first time on friday morning, they rang out as far north. also in the north, three rockets were fired in the don from southern lebanon. the military retaliated. no group has claimed responsibility. as a tax increase, the west as the tax increase -- as the tax increase, they are still contemplating the ground assault. >> we have seen further rockets this morning. i must this morning international areas --hamas is warning international area -- airports will continue to target the airport. >> there was a warning of the airport. people scurrying to bomb shelters. s taking off,plane
5:34 am
arrivals delayed. having said that, i would say the hamas warning is still a threat. the truth about the hamas rockets is they are not targeted. they can point them somewhere and hope they land there. the capacity to actually target and reach the ben-gurion airport is limited. so far, no airlines have been called out. one did turn around. that was on the decision of the pilot. at the moment, the effect of that threat by hamas and the reality of what they can deliver are far apart. >> after four days of rocket fire, what is the mood of israelis? >> israelis are fed up. they left gaza in 2005. hamas was a player.

5:37 am
>> who is going --who will decide to finish it? hamas or israel? >> israel can stop. both sides can stop.

5:44 am
while bosnian serbs say the civilian victims are being forgotten. serbia, one of the neighboring countries of bosnia, condemned thes ago the massacre at beginning a with the other war crimes but later as genocide. the bosnian serb government refused to do so. in bosnia, the debate about the responsibilities of the war is still rife. this is why the bosnian serbs refuse to condemn the massacre and collect a genocide. >> we have had another round of newly identified victims. is buried today. why has the added fixation process taken so long? -- why has the identification process taken so long? victims have been identified using dna techniques.
5:45 am
that is 6000 of 8000 victims. this week, 135 are being buried. that can be deemed a relatively small number when one remembers between 400 and 600 victims were buried on the occasion of some commemorations in recent years. one major problem is the cost of the identification process. bodies have to be found, then reconstructed. the bones are often mixed. dna sampling is expensive. the process costs 1500 euros. >> thank you. moving on to world cup news. in a meeting with his fellow teammates, he broke down in tears claiming the challenge that ended his world cup came close to paralyzing him. the 22-year-old fractured a vertebra in his spine when he was need -- kneed in the back.

5:49 am
and jihad leaders have gone deep underground. you cannot get there with airstrikes -- get them with airstrikes. it says yes, go for the ground invasion. but don't rush into it. what we need as far as israel is concerned is successful airstrikes and then a ground soasion that will be smooth no israeli soldiers will be kidnapped and harmed. the newspaper on the left of the political spectrum in israel which is say we have usther operation ahead of like the one that dates back to 2008 during which hundreds of palestinians were killed. >> israel received a lot of international criticism for the operation. >> absolutely. heavily criticized. haretz is saying israel has not learned the lessons of that

experience. we will will seen again the loss of innocent civilian life and this will lead to heavy criticism again. >> you have also been looking at palestinian papers. >> i turned to our colleagues on the arab language panel here. my colleague showed me a couple of palestinian papers. this means "jerusalem" in arabic. the editorial says the killing of gaza children is up seen -- obscene. it asks the question, is the blood of our children worth so little? the mood in another palestinian paper is perhaps more belligerent in favor of the palestinian militants. it is saying these fighters are making history against israel. they are defending the palestinian cause. it is pointing out the loss of
5:51 am
innocent life is alarming. but there is that contrast between the two sides. >> not surprisingly, the french press have been leading with this story too. >> it is the top story for the west wing french paper. you can see the headline, "escalation." the gaza correspondent is saying palestinians are feeling anger and fear as the airstrikes hit. no onetorial is saying is going to win in this conflict. militaryel with its might may score a victory in terms of the army. but hamas will come out stronger politically because it will have been seen to defend the palestinian cause against an enemy. >> in sharp contrast, the french press are alarming about the weather. not surprisingly because it is
5:52 am
horrific in france at the moment. on monday, you have a national holiday, bastille day. it is seen to be the beginning of the summer holiday. this is not the best weather to begin a summer vacation. >> it is extraordinary because july is when a group of people leave for the south. we have on the front page is umbrellas up, not for the sunshine before the rainy weather. it is like november. karen this -- horrendous. >> i think we should have a new summer, aled combination of winter and summer. >> this has five recommendations for people, for the one in four people who will not go away this summer. it says to put away your smart phone, get your book out. go and see your friends, plan a picnic. get out and about and have a holiday mood. >> i want to know as an

5:54 am
there were a lot of nerves, waterfalls -- a lot of false. but it all went well because of great teamwork. we have been upfront all race. there were a lot of crosswinds. eventually, we are happy because we had a great day. >> he has been talking about germany's 7-1 fracturing of brazil on tuesday. the veteran striker started the match for only the second time in brazil and helped to guide his side to an eight world cup final. quick to highlight they are not getting ahead of themselves just yet. with regards to the first question, we certainly enjoyed the match against brazil. but ever since last night, the focus has been on argentina in the final.
5:55 am
it will be a totally different game. we will have to put in everything we have once again. it is a final. no doubt about that. i know how bad it feels to lose a final, so i'm confident we will take this opportunity and it will be our turn. we have the opportunity to win this match. the scale of the results slightly overshadowed the goal as he became the all-time leading world cup goal scorer with his 16th. it was better he was in the stadium and i overtook him in a match playing against brazil. he sent me a, message saying welcome to the 15 club before the game. . can only send a message back
